You might need to give a few more months for them to get accustomed to this short-style game.
But most obvious to me, and a trap I think a lot of new players (me included) fall into is being too obsessed with the short-passing style. From looking at your tactics, I think all your players are passing WAY too short, especially your playmakers. You're playmakers can't really make anything when you're instructing them only to make 2 cm passes!
So what happens when you play this style is yes, you get a lot of possession but not much from it. Especially against a defensively sound and disciplined team. Your team is tiki-taking is everywhere but when they can only make short passes often times these short passes will simply by sideway passes or when they try to get it slowly forward, gets cut out or tackled out and then you have to short again.
In short: Make your passing longer.
Also when you got the "time-wasting" to sometimes, your players be on the ball longer, which probably isn't helping either.

well... firstly where are the shots coming from and how many were on target?
If they had 10 shots and all where on target then I would worry. Also if they're coming from inside the penalty box then I would worry.
If their shots are coming from outside the penalty box and not on target (they usually go hand in hand). Personally I don't concede many but that's many due to be controlling the game and not letting them get too much of the ball.
and I just won anji 2-1 but they had 24 shots and 54 % of possesion and I had 5 shots and 46% possesion.. that was an away game.. what should I do to avoid the enemy dominating the game>
Yeah, if 2/10 shots were on target I wouldn't worry too much about it.
like all other formations, there are some formations that the 4-3-2-1 is not good against. What sort of formation were they using?
It would simply have been the fact that you were playing away from home but a 24 to 5 shot ratio is worrying.
I have found (from practical experience) the 4-3-1-2 is something that the 4-3-2-1 copes poorly with.
